Differentiating the follicular derived lesions can be challenging. Although immunohistochemistry is generally accepted as a useful ancillary technique in the diagnosis, controversy exists regarding the best marker or combination of markers to distinguish each lesion from its mimics. In this study, we aimed at evaluating multiple markers to compare their ...

Adenoma malignum is a rare malignancy of the cervix that often presents, as in this case, as urinary incontinence (UI). Due to this symptomatology, women with adenoma malignum are often referred to urogynecologists for investigation and management. Without a high degree of suspicion, the diagnosis is easy to overlook due ...

Both causation and management of noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) (abfractions, wedge-shaped defects, stress-induced cervical lesions, and cervical erosion) remain debatable. A survey of clinicians' perceptions was therefore conducted at a recent professional meeting to determine optimal approaches to NCCL management. Examples of lesions differing in depth (1, 2, and 3 ...

Dinoflagellates are microscopic, eukaryotic and primarily marine plankton. Temporary cyst formation is a well-known physiological response of dinoflagellate cells to environmental stresses. However, the molecular underpinnings of cold-induced cyst physiology have never been described. Cultures of the photosynthetic dinoflagellate Lingulodinium polyedrum readily form temporary cysts when placed at low (8 ...

Adenocarcinoma arising from a mediastinal cyst was detected by exercise technetium-99m hexakis-2-methoxyisobuty-lisonitrile (99m)Tc-MIBI scintigraphy in a 65-year-old woman with known coronary disease. This guided further investigations and resection of the tumor which stained positive for P-glycoprotein. Three years earlier, myocardial scintigraphy was negative, probably due to down-expression of P-glycoprotein because ...
